We only stayed one night, but the staff was great and the sold us fair priced tours. Everything was clean and the kitchen was nice to use. Plus the view is pretty cool.

Most appalling experience. The shortened version: The room did not resemble the pictures online. When we told the receptionist that this was not what we expected and that we were going to look for something else she tried to make us pay the whole reservation, we were sent out to go to an internet cafe to view the policy (which is to pay one day), and as soon as we left, were chased down in the street, threatened, and the police were called. They charged my card anyway, even after all this.

Really great hostel. Nice view of the landscape and nice room. Only con is the lack of bathrooms and every time I would go in it there was water everywhere. Besides that good breakfast and room.

Hostel was walking distance from downtown and provided transportation to tours or parks. We were very impressed with the staff. They were extremely helpful and outgoing. Always willing to help and smiling! No keys to rooms but there are keys for the building and lockers are available. We felt very safe and secure. Beautiful view, breakfast was delicious and hostel was quiet and respectful. Very impressed!

Monteverde was my favorite city to stay and this hostel contributed a lot to that. Upon arriving, the staff was welcoming and booked everything for us. Lots of things to do and see here. The place is clean and the beds were very comfortable. It's a further walk from the main town area but nothing too far to complain about (no more than 5 min. extra). Daiana dealt with most of our bookings and we couldn't be more thankful for her!

It's a good deal for the price. The kitchen is useful and the commun areas are cool. The room was small with a a really hard bed, but we had a bathroom in it. We didn't have hot water the first morning, but everything was fixed. We found a cocroarch on the curtains.... But it's was probably from the outside. Finally, the most important, people were really great and welcoming. They were helpful with all the tours and activities.

Great communal patio area to relax in a hammock; super friendly staff and cheap, easy + reliable to book a tour. Close to the supermarket and town to explore.

Very friendly staff, good included breakfast (we had fluffy pancakes and fruits the first day, eggs, toast and fruits the next day). System for the tours is good, if you have to cancel one expedition they refund you at the hostel. Small kitchen but it's working and not all the private rooms lock.

We really enjoyed our night at la golfo, the private room was worth the splurge and the beds were very comfortable. Breakfast was amazing, sitting outside, eating fruit and soaking up the sun was exactly what we needed. This was such a good find, the staff were so nice and helpful, and gave great recommendations when it came to where to eat and what tours to do.

Great place, has everything you need. The only thing is I had a rush due to some chemical on the bedsheets or got badly bitten in that bed, not sure. Overall it was really nice!!

Hostel was nice. breakfast was good. atmosphere doesnt really exist but if you want a simple cheap room this i9s the place. kitchen was good if you want to keep it cheap by cooking. if you just want a room this place is great if you want something more lively go elsewhere

We stayed in a 6 bed mixed dorm, which worked well for us. The staff definitely tries to keep this place as clean as possible. The complimentary breakfast was filling and included pancakes and fruit. The place is conveniently located near town and near the supermarket. The first time we walked to the hostel we accidentally took the REALLY long way around and didn't realize there was shortcut near the supermarket. More instructions on how to find the shortcut would have been helpful.

We left a deposit for the room keys, however when we went to check out in the morning the was no one in the office to refund our money. As a result we were forced to leave without our deposit.
